A display of harmlessness

Sorry I don't have much time for posting this weekend so I leave the pre-game line-up-gambling to you lads

u chicken

ok, taking into account the absent players ( simao, miccoli, manuel fernandes, karagounis....), including geovanni which koeman decided not to call (and i have to agree with him on this decision, since geovanni has been a waste of space everytime he plays :rollani: )
this would be my starting line-up

Code:
                quim

alcides   luisão   anderson    léo

       beto       petit

nelson    nuno assis         karyaka

           nuno gomes
i think that alcides did a good job last game, and its worth a try having him as a starter, and he does look bettter than joao pereira.

nuno assis did quite well behind nuno gomes, so definetly a starter for tonight, and personally i would play karyaka in the left, with eventually helio roque coming in the 2nd half to make any necessary readjustments

tonight is a must win of coz, and i hope we can take advantage from yesterdays result of the derby, which was benefitial to us


FORÇA BENFICA !!!!! :fero:

I cannot but agree there. Still there's this premonition.
17 minutes played 0:0, business as usual.
Come on Benfica, a victory is urgently necessary!

1:0 ... Mantorras finally again gains us vital points as he did so well last season. Força Pedro!
Yet however a long way lies in front of us, we're narrowly out of the title race and on 6th rank already, whatever tomorrows results.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we won

at last mantorras had a good game!!! not only for the decisive goal scored, but also from the effort he put through the game

luisao was huuuuge, massive on defense...actually all defense was very good tonight, since maritimo put a lot of pressure, and those last mins were terrifying

nuno gomes, was awesome too

next victim...MU!


ps: bier bier, my fellow benfiquista...how can u say we are anywhere out of the title race??? 6pts now thats NOTHING! we will win

When you defend like this, you only have to put one ball behind the net.

Kudos to our defenders and central midfield, especially Beto.

ahahahaah i saw him call that, i didnt realise it was to his assistant coach...but it was when he was trying to sub in both helio roque and anderson, for nuno assis and leo...and somehow it was given the wrong number to the pitch, alcides number
and he got well pissed and called it off, and eventually had to postpone the substitution for a couple mins...but i wasnt sure to whom was he calling puta

Is that true (the puta-thingy)? Why would Koeman do so? Maybe the guys make a fool out of him by teaching him some wrong portuguese.
puta = assistant coach
Well, guess his spanish however is good enough to recognized he's somehow fooled in such case.

Great goal by Mantorras ... I just love it when he does that to clumsy defenders. 2 years of injury and our golden boy hasn't lost his pace. There's more to come from now on!

It might eventually also give us a hint at the actual state of team-spirit within Benfica's first team squad

Just imagine in some training session:
"O Simão, fds, não brinques com a bola, pá! Dá me essa bola! Por crlh, pá!"
and when the training ends, he just tells the squad in a pretty harsh manner:
"Á rua!"
